Second annual Mid-Summer Knights Medieval Festival opens Friday

Hear ye, hear ye! The king and queen of Warrenshire bid Valley subjects to partake in a gala Mid-Summer Knights Medieval Festival on the grounds of Christ Episcopal Church.

James “Jim” Johnson, a church member for some 30 years, serves as chancellor (coordinator) of the kingdom. “We wanted to have some kind of event but something different,” he said. “We did some research and this theme and date works out.”

Johnson said last year’s inaugural event attracted about 1,000 Valley residents. “We expect double that this year,” he said, adding people may come as they are or get into the spirit of the day by dressing in medieval garb.

Johnson said there will be activities to engage all ages and interests.

Friday night at the church, there will be a medieval feast and madrigal dinner. With some tickets still available, Johnson is hoping people will say to themselves, “let us go thither.”

Tapestries of Ohio, a madrigal group, will perform in period costumes and sing music of the era for the dinner theater.
